This Will Not Win Him

– By Jalaluddin RumiReason says,

couple in a sunset

I will win him with my eloquence.

Love says,
I will win him with my silence.

Soul says,
How can I ever win him
When all I have is already his?

He does not want, he does not worry,
He does not seek a sublime state of euphoria –
How then can I win him
With sweet wine or gold?

He is not bound by the senses –
How then can I win him
With all the riches of China?

He is an angel,
Though he appears in the form of a man.
Even angels cannot fly in his presence –
How then can I win him
By assuming a heavenly form?

He flies on the wings of God,
His food is pure light –
How then can I win him
With a loaf of baked bread?

He is neither a merchant, nor a tradesman –
How then can I win him
With a plan of great profit?

He is not blind, nor easily fooled –
How then can I win him
By lying in bed as if gravely ill?

I will go mad, pull out my hair,
Grind my face in the dirt –
How will this win him?

He sees everything –
how can I ever fool him?

He is not a seeker of fame,
A prince addicted to the praise of poets –
How then can I win him
With flowing rhymes and poetic verses?

The glory of his unseen form
Fills the whole universe
How then can I win him
With a mere promise of paradise?

I may cover the earth with roses,
I may fill the ocean with tears,
I may shake the heavens with praises –
none of this will win him.

There is only one way to win him,
this Beloved of mine –

Become his
